HTC might launch a plastic version of the One M8

HTC loves to brag about the new One M8‘s unibody metal construction, and how that makes it feel a lot more ‘premium’ than its main competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S5. But the Taiwanese company may soon be launching a plastic version of the One M8, if a new report from China is to be believed. Don’t, however, read the following without a healthy dose of salt nearby, as for now this is just an unconfirmed rumor...

HTC One M8 for Verizon and Sprint now just $149.99 with contract

Ever since it launched not long ago, the new HTC One M8 has been priced by US carriers at $199.99 with a new two-year contract. That’s nothing to be angry about, as it’s basically the standard price for a high-end smartphone, and it’s been so since the iPhone arrived on the market many years ago. But if you wanted to save a few bucks on the purchase and haven’t yet bought your very own One M8, Amazon has...

HTC Butterfly Android 4.4 KitKat update confirmed by HTC, “coming soon”

Last month a leak told us to expect Android 4.4 KitKat updates for both the original HTC Butterfly from 2012 as well as the Butterfly S from last year, alongside a couple of Desire-branded smartphones. In the meantime, the Butterfly S has already started getting its taste of KitKat, so what about the Butterfly? Well, there’s no update to get just yet, but the (very) good news for owners of this handset is that HTC has officially...

HTC One M8 Mini arrives in the UK in May with 4.5″ screen, aluminium body, no Duo Camera

Last week we first heard that a Mini variant of HTC’s new One M8 would be coming at some point in the future. That’s because a Swedish carrier decided to just out the yet-unannounced handset in a list of devices that support HD Voice. It’s been pretty obvious, though, that HTC would follow-up last year’s One Mini with a new iteration, since the ‘Mini’ trend doesn’t look like it’s going...

HTC Desire 316 shows up in China

HTC has added yet another midrange Desire-branded offering to its smartphone roster. For now, the Desire 316 has only showed itself on HTC’s website for China, but it may be on its way to other markets too (though probably only in Asia). It features the x16 branding that got started with the Desire 816, HTC’s first midrange phablet, and it may not be the last one in the series, with a Desire 616 already on the way. The HTC...

HTC One M8 Mini coming, one carrier says

Last year the sidekick to HTC’s One was the One Mini – a lower-end and smaller version of the flagship smartphone. Or, some may say, just a lookalike with wildly different specs. This is after all what most manufacturers (with the one notable exception being Sony) have done when creating such Mini handsets – take the flagship’s design, make it fit a smaller package, and use midrange specs all-round. Will it be...

You can now get two HTC One M8s from Verizon for just $139.99

The all new HTC One M8 has been available at Verizon for a couple of days now, ever since it was announced on March 25. As you may know, the carrier decided to launch a BOGO (buy one, get one free) offer for the handset, which has meant you could buy two devices for the price of one. So two for $199.99, essentially making that around $100 a piece. That’s not bad for a top of the line smartphone that just launched, though...

AT&T’s HTC One Mini and Sprint’s HTC One Max both now getting Android 4.4 KitKat updates

Two more handsets have started receiving updates to Android 4.4 KitKat, and they’re both made by HTC. The One Mini sold by AT&T and the One Max sold by Sprint are the lucky recipients of the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system this time around. The AT&T HTC One Mini is now in the process of getting both Android 4.4 KitKat and HTC Sense 5.5, the latest version of the company’s UI overlay (for...

HTC Desire 616 surfaces in China, specs and pictures now out

To add to its increasingly expansive midrange portfolio of Desire-branded smartphones, HTC is working on a new device it turns out. This is the Desire 616, which may in fact be the company’s first octa-core smartphone. It will use MediaTek’s now almost-ubiquitous (at least in China and other parts of Asia) MT6592 chipset, that many of HTC’s competitors have been putting in their handsets for a few months now. The...

The All New HTC One M8 finally gets official, available today

After many months of leaks, the all new HTC One (M8) was announced today. There’s really nothing surprising here, because all of its specs have been leaked many times until now. The new One, which its maker’s representatives kept calling HTC One M8 on stage today, is obviously the company’s flagship smartphone for this year. It has a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, an UltraPixel HTC Duo Camera with dual LED flash...
